I recently came off Tibolone after 10 years on it without problems and with relief from constant nighttime hot flushes. My GP in his wisdom felt it was time to change me to Ellesse Duet. After one month I had a considerable bleed and was found on hysteroscopy to have thickened endometrium and an ovarian cyst which is now being monitored by two further scans four months apart. Thankfully no cancer was found but it was a shock. I was warned throughout the treatment years of risks to heart and B/P but the possibility of abnormal cells in the uterus was never mentioned. Now I am cold turkey without HRT and apart from a few hot flushes at night if I have a glass of wine too many its fine. My achiness and tiredness I put down to arthritis. I just wonder if we are outing to many other symptoms down to the menopause when they might juts be 'normal' ageing.
